JLo to be ‘Will & Grace’ guest star
Jennifer Lopez is to confirm her status of gay icon and to please her LGBT fanbase being a guest star in the popular gay sitcom again, more than 10 years after. In 2004 Lopez played herself in Will and Grace, but now she is going to have 2 separated roles. She will appear both as herself, and in a cross-over role as Harlee Santos, her character in NBC crime drama Shades of Blue. Will & Grace officially confirmed her appearance, by posting a photo of her with Jack (Sean Hayes), Grace (Debra Messing) and Karen (Megan Mullally) captioning that they are superexcited about the common work. Other prominent guest stars in the new season include Glee’s Jane Lynch and Girls star Andrew Rannells, who made an appearance as the leaders of a gay ‘cure’ camp. In addition to the main four, the show has featured the return of fan favourites Leo Markus (Harry Connick Jr), Lorraine Finster (Minnie Driver) and Beverey Leslie (Leslie Jordan). Channel 5 is picking up the latest instalments of Will and Grace as a show that braks barriers.
